This is an absolute gem of a hotel. Staff are lovely and the place is clean and modern. Breakfast was also fantastic. The main draw though is the incredible views from the balcony and some of the rooms - be sure to ask for a room with a view! Highly recommend.

This is a truly fabulous find. If I could rate it 12/10 I would. It's a beautiful, clean guest house with magnificent views over Kandy. I can't say enough about the staff so friendly, helpful and welcoming. They were just lovely. Always smiling. They even took another guests baby for a walk yesterday so they could eat breakfast in peace....

Lovely hosts and great location looking over Kandy. we had a room looking over the city which was worn the small extra price. Beautifully clean. Ten minutes to the centre of town walking down the steps. You can get a tuk tuk back but we walked. Had the curry buffet at the Sharon Inn which was great. Highly recommend this...

We stayed at McLeod Inn in Kandy one night. It was a very pleasant stay. The owners were very good and very warm hosts. They were personal, kind and very helpful. This is a place that has been in the family for many years and has been very well built using the best material. The place reflects what the town...

We stay 2 nights and all was very good. The rooms are clean, beds confortable, and the hotel offers a beautiful view on the lake and the Tooth Temple. Owned by a nice family which can help you for all your needs, we highly recommend the McLeod Inn.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at McLeod Inn. The staff could not have been nicer, and the dining room has a beautiful view over the city. The breakfast was delicious, and they gave us lots of helpful hints about the city. We had a room on the bottom floor, but the ones higher up would have a good view. A...

We booked a double/twin room with lake view for our stay. The inn is old-ish (has been around at least 35 years!) but is well maintained and clean. As such some of the furnishings were quaint but definitely functional. The beds were relatively comfortable and clean, the toilet/shower was clean and the hot water worked. There is also a TV...

We had the room with the view of the lake which was stunning - can't imagine where you'd find a better one! The beds are basic but comfy (we had two twins pushed together but it was fine) and the room was clean; the bathroom was fairly small but not unreasonable. The owner was very friendly and kind and let...
